10. The Weeping Higan Cherry Tree

Cherry tree at Inwood Hill Park

On your way out of the park, don’t miss this low-lying tree that overlooks the marsh and is a popular hangout spot and backdrop for pictures, especially when in its glorious spring bloom. It is a non-native bloomer from Asia and Japan that attracts scores of prom and wedding groups for photo-ops when the pink flowers are at their peak — usually May.
